Breaking Bad Dominates 66th Emmy Awards
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 08.25.2014



As was to be expected, the final season of Breaking Bad destroyed the competition at the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Vince Gilligan and AMC's critically-acclaimed drama took home five awards to control the night including Best Drama, Best Actor (Bryan Cranston), Best Supporting Actor (Aaron Paul), Best Supporting Actress (Anna Gunn) and Best Writing (Moira Walley-Beckett for the show's best episode, "Ozymandias"). The show came in as the big favorite to win but had a mighty contender in True Detective, which it had little problem vanquishing. The freshman HBO show was nominated for several Emmys but only won Best Direction for a Drama.

Over on the comedy side, it was business as usual. Modern Family won the night with three wins, including Best Comedy, Best Supporting Actor (Ty Burrell) and Best Direction for a Comedy (Gail Mancuso). Jim Parsons and Julia Louise-Dreyfus repeated their wins in the Lead Acting comedy categories for Big Bang Theory and Veep while Allison Janney was the sole newcomer comedy win, taking home Best Supporting Comedic Actress for Mom.

The mini-series and movie categories were a bit of a surprise, as The Normal Heart was largely shut out. The lauded HBO TV movie did pick up Best TV Movie but lost out in all other categories. Sherlock dominated the competition instead, scoring upset wins for Steven Moffat (Writing), Benedict Cumberbatch (Lead Actor) and Martin Freeman (Supporting Actor). American Horror Story: Coven and Fargo also picked up two awards.
